Melania Trump setting up 'Be Best' office at Mar-a-Lago: report
(Frederic Legrand - COMEO /

According to a report from CNN, former first lady Melania Trump is hard at work hiring and setting up an office at her current residence at Mar-a-Lago with the plan to keep her "Be Best" anti-bullying campaign alive even though she and her family are now out of the national spotlight.

As the report notes, the wife of the former president has already hired on three former White House aides to keep her initiative going, which CNN notes is a change from her White House time when only one person was employed to help her use her bully pulpit to defend bullied children.

"Trump's post-White House office will consist of three of her White House staff members, the sources confirmed to CNN. Hayley D'Antuono served for four years as the former first lady's director of operations and trip supervisor, and is now Trump's chief of staff," the report states before pointing out, "Trump often did little to help clarify or expand on her platform during her time in the White House, often going weeks between Be Best-focused public events. The East Wing policy office was not robustly staffed, at times sat vacant, and at most had one full-time, dedicated East Wing employee."

The report states that the wife of the ex-president is looking for office space in Palm Beach.

"Trump's office is for now functioning out of former President Donald Trump's private club, Mar-a-Lago, which also is where the former first family is living, and the staff members are at times working remotely," CNN reported.

The news outlet also noted that Melania Trump left the White House with her favorability rating at only 42 percent -- plummeting from a high of 57 percent recorded back in May, 2018, when she attended the funeral for the late President George H.W. Bush without her husband accompanying her.
